A reaction record to the tragic Derrion Albert murder. Read more background on it and what's been planned next happening later today:
"October 17th, 2009 (Chicago, IL) Due to the recent brutal murder of Derrion Albert, which attracted worldwide press, and the more than 150 homicides in Chicago since the beginning of the year (Chicago Breaking News) major recording artists David Banner, Rhymefest, Naledge (from Kidz In The Hall), Skooda Chose, and producer 9th Wonder have united to raise awareness of the epidemic of violence among urban youth within Chicago by organizing an Anti-Violence rally. Additionally, the rally will serve as a creative canvas backdrop for the video shoot and release of the song “Something’s Wrong.”
On Tuesday, October 20th, 2009, at George’s Music Room, located at 3915 West Roosevelt Rd - shoot time starts at 6:00 am. In attendance will be family members and friends of the victims of violence, Chicago Public School students, community organizations, churches, politicians and local residents. Participants are uniting to call for an end to senseless violence utilizing the Hip-Hop art form as a catalyst for change and a platform for youth to engage in community awareness and activism."
David Banner - "Something Is Wrong (Remix)" feat. Rhymefest, Naledge & Twista (prod. 9th Wonder) [yousendit mp3 download link] <--- I think this version cuts off??
I've been saying it for years and I'ma stay screaming it: Rhymefest is criminally underrated. Why is he so slept on by hip hop fans? (Now his twitter updates on the other hand....)
